With the advent of 2014 innovation & tech, it has become important to take a look at the new developments in the field of the human resources to attain growth and success in one’s business.
In this context, some key factors will be evaluated here.
2014 HR trends
The popularity of the concept of globalisation was quite evident in the last year and it will continue to create its impact this year too. As businesses and employees are growing beyond boundaries, it has become essential to ensure that both global and local teams are managed well. While doing so, rewarding different cultures and expectations will be very important. At the same time, companies would have to discover talents that not only comply with their policies but also adopt their vision.
“Since mobile technology is advancing with every passing day, companies will shift their focus to mobile based career websites and applications to hunt for talent.”
This year the main focus will be on HR labour hire based analytics. The data will help organisations to formulate vital strategies for the workforce, keeping in mind the possibility of the occurrence of any particular scenario.
A new service-based software model will be created as a part of the technology investment in order to keep a track of a company’s impressions and interactions with potential and future recruits.
A host of social networking services such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and others will be intensively used for recruitments. These platforms will also help companies to keep an eye on their new, existing and old employees.
Since mobile technology is advancing with every passing day, companies will shift their focus to mobile based career websites and applications to hunt for talent. The mobile apps are expected to cut down time and the cost for processing the jobs.
This time not only HR team but leaders from other departments will also be involved in re-assessing the strategies of their companies to face the challenges of global economy. This in turn will help organisations to understand how their workforce can be put to better use.
